Those who kept up with Diana, Princess of Wales during her time in the limelight and studied her posthumously will know how much she loved jewelry. As her biopic, Spencer, starring Kristen Stewart aims to represent her life as accurately as possible, mirroring some of her most iconic pieces was crucial. To do just that, Mouawad, the Swiss-Emirati house with Lebanese origins was enlisted as the exclusive jeweler. Founded in 1890 in Beirut by David Mouawad, the jewelry house has traveled through Saudi and is now headquartered in Dubai and Geneva.

Spencer‘s official trailer offered glimpses of a few of the jewelry pieces worn by Stewart, including her engagement ring. A nod to Princess Diana’s own ring, Mouawad’s creation features featuring 1.82ct diamonds and a 7.2ct blue sapphire.

Tapping into a life-changing Christmas Eve to Boxing Day period at the Queen’s Norfolk home, Sandringham, Spencer focuses on the time the Princess decided to leave Prince Charles. It received a standing ovation following its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and is expected to release in the US and the UK on November 5.

Mouawad has a long-standing record of being the choice for notable gifts to royalty, prime ministers, celebrities, and the heads of some states. “It has been a pleasure to work on Spencer, providing the jewelry for the role of an iconic princess known for her style as well as her powerful impact on the world,” stated the house’s fourth-generation co-guardians, Fred, Alain, and Pascal Mouawad.
